Conservative Secretary Chloe Smith's husband is a Covid-19 conspiracy theorist who has labeled the coronavirus a "mental illness" and retweeted posts describing the government as "globalist puppets" and "tyrants".
Sandy McFadzean, a financial advisor, attended the Saturday march in London along with 10,000 other anti-Vaxxers who protested lockdown measures.
The father of two, Mr. McFadzean, a former parachute regiment officer, also retweeted a poster for the march calling for no trace, trace, social distancing and no face masks.
Secretary of State for Constitution and Decentralization Ms. Smith, MP from Norwich North, has endorsed the government's anti-coronavirus policy and changed her Twitter name during the pandemic to reflect the government's message of “Stay Alert, Save Lives”.
However, Mr McFadzean, who is originally from Scotland and married Ms. Smith in 2013, denies the existence of Covid-19 and writes on Twitter: “The government needs to be clear. Either a killer virus is at large or it isn't. (Spoiler alert: does not exist) & # 39 ;.
In July he wrote, "Covid-19 is most likely a mental illness outbreak."

Mr McFadzean also mentioned StandUp X in a Twitter post – a group that believes the coronavirus will force vaccinations on people for the benefit of pharmaceutical companies and Microsoft founder Bill Gates.
His account was deleted Wednesday afternoon after Ms. Smith, 38, was contacted by her local newspaper, the Eastern Daily Press reported.

Who is Sandy McFadzean? Cambridge student, Parachute Regiment officer, financial advisor and conspiracy theorist
Sandy McFadzean was born in Scotland and raised in North Wales.
He holds an MA from Cambridge University and served as an officer on a brief service committee with the Parachute Regiment.
He later embarked on a career in financial services, initially working for Morgan Stanley before joining Deloitte.
McFadzean, then 34, was working as a senior consultant at the London-based finance firm Catalyst Development in 2012 when he met Chloe Smith, then 30, at a charity ball.
After a four-month romance, Chloe suggested he punch a blow for equality.

They got engaged shortly after her car accident interview with Jeremy Paxman in which she defended government policy regarding fuel.
The following day, Mr. McFadzean accepted and produced a diamond ring – and the couple were married in 2013.
Ms. Smith said it was "love at first sight" when she met her future husband at the charity event that summer after he had just finished a triathlon.
"When we met that night, Sandy had swum ashore from the Isle of Wight, driven 100 miles through the New Forest and run a half marathon to London and still made it to the charity ball," she told the Norwich Evening News.
“He can repeat this at any time with a box of milk bowl.
“I just loved the way Sandy talked. I was immediately drawn to his really relaxed demeanor and we hit it off right away. We share a great interest in how the world works and what makes people tick. & # 39;
The couple have two children, Alastair, born in 2016, and Rosamund, born last year.

Protesters called for an "end to government lies" and the restoration of all freedoms as they marched past Downing Street to the Houses of Parliament.
Earlier posts Mr. McFadzean retweeted included one berating the government for announcing fines against people who had joined mass gatherings.
And the Vice President of Bank Credit Suisse also retweeted a post in which the arrest of one of the organizers of the march, Piers Corbyn, was compared with the crackdown on pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong.
Mr Corbyn, the brother of former Labor leader Jeremy, was arrested and fined £ 10,000 after the march for holding a meeting of more than 30 people in an outdoor location.
